Hongkong Wildlife 2
Today the monkeys arrived! We were warned by our neighbors that this was likely to happen as soon as our fruit trees ripened. Protocol is to chase the monkeys off, as they can carry disease and wreak havoc with the area dogs, plus they like to throw food and ahem, worse things at people. But before we chased 'em off, I did get these two snapshots, taken about three hours ago.
"All your fortresses are like fig trees with their first ripe fruit; when they are shaken, the figs fall into the mouth of the eater ." -- Nahum 3:12 (I'm not sure I've ever actually quoted from the little Biblical book of Nahum before... but these monkeys were doing a great job of shaking those trees!)
